Microsoft’s Project xCloud service will allow you to stream Xbox One games on any device

10 Oct 2018

The Xbox One console is a great device where you can play lots of awesome games such as Halo 5, Forza Horizon 4 and more. That being said, not everyone in the world has enough money to buy a console as well as a decent HD or 4KTV to play on. 

In order to increase the accessibility of video gaming around the world, Microsoft has revealed this week its Project xCloud service. This is basically a new streaming service that will allow you to play your favourite Xbox games on a tablet or mobile device. 

Microsoft showed a video where you can see that games like Forza Horizon 4, Halo 5 and more can be played using an Xbox One controller while streaming on a tablet or smartphone. If you don’t have an Xbox One controller, touch screen controls can also be utilized. 

The idea of streaming games means you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars to play on a console and an HD or 4K TV. Streaming games will be the future where almost everyone around the world can have access to latest and greatest games. 

You can see more in the video yourself down below. Project xCloud isn’t available yet, but Microsoft will be sure to release it worldwide very soon.
